9780044459118: Feminism and Youth Culture: From Jackie to Just Seventeen

Feminism and Youth Culture brings together eight separate essays written by Angela McRobbie (Zoot Suits and Second-Hand Dresses, 1989) over a period of over ten years. Various themes include the effect of sexual inequality on the everyday lives of working-class girls; the blindness of male sociologists to questions of gender; the pressure on teenage girls to achieve idealized expectations of femininity; the pleasure of teenage femininity; and the pain of poverty arising from teenage motherhood. Feminism and Youth Culture represents both a broad and a detailed approach to an area of study that has been marginalized in the existing sociology of youth.
